Deopham Green tells the dramatic story of the men of the 452nd Bomb Group and the British families who lived on or near their base at Deopham Green in World War II England. The documentary begins with the story of activation and training in the United States and tracks the air crews and ground personnel as they acquire the tools of war and then make their way to England and the front lines of the air war in the European Theater of Operations (ETO). The video contains eye witness accounts from both American servicemen and British family members as they remember the air war over German-held territory and the stories of sacrifice and courage that played out every day at Deopham Green and the skies of WWII Europe. This documentary provides an exciting look into the human side of war as nearby British families suffered the threat of German air attacks and wartime sacrifices while ground crews labored to keep the B-17 flying and the air crews struggled to beat the odds over Nazi Europe. Deopham Green is the breath-taking story of ordinary people rising to greatness in the struggle against darkness and evil. Winston Churchill's words certainly apply to Deopham Green and her people, both British and American: "This is their finest hour." Produced by Dr. Vernon L. Williams.
